To hear President Obama Sunday Night on “60 Minutes” talking about the rise of ISIS, you’d think the radical group of Islamists pretty much came out of nowhere — that its formidable emergence onto the terror scene was a real surprise.

In fact, in the “60 Minutes” interview with Steve Kroft, Obama threw his intelligence experts under the bus, saying they were seriously caught off guard by the sudden threat posed by the Islamic State.

However, Obama’s characterization of the ISIS threat simply isn’t true, according to a report on one of the leading liberal websites — a site that regularly and reliably supports and defends Obama — The Daily Beast.

On “60 Minutes,” the president faulted his spies for failing to predict the rise of ISIS. There’s one problem with that statement: The intelligence analysts did warn about the group.

Nearly eight months ago, some of President Obama’s senior intelligence officials were already warning that ISIS was on the move. In the beginning of 2014, ISIS fighters had defeated Iraqi forces in Fallujah, leading much of the U.S. intelligence community to assess they would try to take more of Iraq.
